The great philosopher Elsa of Arendelle once said (or sang…it’s all a blur) something about going “Into the Unknown“…well that is what I was able to do by using Fiverr to create my new logo (see yesterday’s post revealing it here).
I will say this twice in this post…as much as I wish they had FIVERR DID NOT SPONSOR ME FOR THIS! I PAID FOR IT OUT OF MY PALTRY SAVINGS! Sorry, I’m done yelling now…
The basic premise behind Fiverr is you need something done that you cannot do, do not have the time to do, or you need someone else’s input with, and you pay people money to do it. It’s basically a huge job board where you pull off the little paper fringe of the person that you want to do your work, and you are off to the races.
I found out about Fiverr through sundry web searches and different people on YouTube using their services (Rob Landes on YouTube commissioning people to play songs was a huge inspiration for me). So, I set up a Fiverr account, and used a group called “bossdesigners“, based out of India to put together my new logo. I have included some screenshots of the original parameters that I gave them as well, for my devoted reader’s benefit:
And as a point of reference, here is the logo that after two revision cycles I received:
So, now the fun part…how much did it cost? I ended up paying (cue the drumroll in your head…):
That fee included a total of 5 revision cycles (if needed), as well as a faveicon that could be placed in the top right tab of the website.
There were two things that I noticed through my order that were minor critiques.
- First, because this group was based out of India, I would get updates/notifications from them around 2 in the morning…
- In all fairness they probably got my feedback around 2 in the morning their time. That was not a dealbreaker.
- Second, I had a slight issue with the file once I received it. I had already marked the order complete, when I noticed that there was some irregularly shaped white portions behind the road in the logo. I do not have the ability to alter Vector files, so I could not use the Vector files they provided, and had to edit it out with a JPEG/PNG file. But, I did not catch this soon enough, so that is on me.
Now, the question…”Is the Juice Worth the Squeeze?” I would say yes. I had hit a creative roadblock with my design, and I am happy with the design that the group came up with. I feel that while the group should have noticed the white part behind the road and fixed it, it is ultimately my fault for not catching it before marking the order as complete. Getting a Vector drawing (most people probably know why that is important, but it improves the quality of a drawing)
I would say if you need a logo (or some other creative service) Fiverr would be a good resource. I will be using them again in the future for other projects. Once again, as much as I wish they had FIVERR DID NOT SPONSOR ME FOR THIS! I PAID FOR IT OUT OF MY PALTRY SAVINGS!
If you are interested in using them I HAVE A CONVENIENT REFERRAL LINK RIGHT HERE TO FIVERR THAT YOU CAN USE. I COULD (MAYBE) GENERATE SOME PASSIVE INCOME IF YOU PLACE AN ORDER FROM THIS LINK…
I’m done yelling now…for real…
